Florence Mall in Florence, Kentucky sold at a loss in June 2022

CMBS Loan Loss Volume Decreases in June 

In June, $244 million across 12 CMBS loans were resolved with $92.79 million in losses, carrying an average loss severity of 38.04% for the month, Trepp’s Jack LaForge reported. This represented a sizeable decrease in loan loss volume from the previous month. The 12-month average disposition balance fell to $316.42 million, while the 12-month moving average loss severity stood at 57.51%, slightly up from 56.91% seen in May. 

The largest loan to resolve with a loss in June is the $89.40-million Florence Mall, backed by a 384,111-square-foot regional mall in Florence, KY, within the Cincinnati metro area. 

The collateral was valued at $158.6 million in 2012, which had fallen to $47.1 million as of December 2021. This June, the mall was acquired for $37.8 million by Mason Asset Management and Namdar Realty. 

“Despite the low sales price, liquidation proceeds were considerably higher,” LaForge reported. “Servicer data reports liquidation proceeds of $44.3 million, making the loss in the subordinate tranches of the deal lower than what was expected.”
